This is my absolute favorite thing to serve when we are feeding the missionaries. Especially Elders with big appetites. Just make sure you have a lot of napkins on hand!
What are Riblets
Pork riblets are a cut of meat prepared by a butcher. When the butcher trims spare ribs to make them straight and flat, the piece he removes are sold as riblets. They are delicious, easy to cook and the biggest benefit is that they cost considerably less than a rack of ribs. That is a big help to the budget! The package I bought fed 5 adults, plus some leftovers, and was only $6.00! That price can’t be beat.
To cook pork riblets, start by browning them in the oven at 450 degrees. Once browned, cover them with the delicious sauce. This homemade bbq sauce is a recipe from my mother and it has stood the test of time. Once the pork is covered, turn the oven down to 350 degrees. Then put them in the oven for about 90 minutes, basting them every 20 minutes or so. When they are done, they will be nice and glazed and gooey! Just the way a bbq riblet should be! Depending on the size f the pan and the number you are cooking, you may need to allow for more time.
